BLOG TOUR w/ GIVEAWAY: Kept Secret by Traci Hunter Abramson


Unexpectedly reunited after six years, high school sweethearts Devin Shanahan and Grace Harrington cross paths and have a whirlwind wedding. A lot can change in six years, however, and they must figure out how to make their two independent lives mesh.

Unable to disclose his CIA job to his new wife, when Devin is assigned a top-secret mission to Hong Kong, he tells Grace part of the truth: that he is going to work abroad for six months in finance. But when the mission turns deadly and Devin doesn't know whom to trust, he must make the most difficult decision of his life in an effort to keep Grace safe. Will the seeds of deception prove destructive to their newly formed marriage? And will the love that brought them together be the very thing their enemies use to tear them apart?


Devin plans to work for the CIA after finishing his MBA program.  After meeting up with a former girlfriend at a friend's wedding, everything changes.  Things develop quickly between Grace and Devin and they end up eloping.  Interestingly, this complicates everything when Devin discovers that the CIA plans to send him to Hong Kong under cover.  But Devin is determined to make his marriage work, but when his cover is blown he is forced to disappear leaving Grace hanging.  Abramson has created an interesting plot here with Devin's work for the CIA and the Chinese efforts to turn him into a double agent complicate things.  The romance and commitment between Grace and Devin are refreshing in the face of the challenges they face and the suddenness of their elopement.

I enjoyed getting to know Grace and Devin and following along as they wrestled with their own choices as well as the choices of those around them.  Some of those choices put both Grace and Devin in jeopardy and create some real tension in the book.  This book manages to be both clean and suspenseful which makes for a fun read.
